Wise Guys

Above left is a photo of the famous Bani Hassan tombs of the pharaonic governors of Al-Minya in Egypt and the surrounding upper region. On the right is the residence of the contemporary governors of Minya during Mubarak's era. Both locations overlook the same magnificent panorama in the photo below, the only difference is that the old rulers although they were hated by the people they ruled same as the current ones, they choose to enjoy this view much longer!

The people from the barrio built the city twice: during the day we built the houses of the well-off. At night and at weekends, with solidarity, we built our own homes, our barrio.
